Southampton vs Wolves Betting Tips – Premier League, 18th January 3.00pm

The Saints are one of the form teams of the Premier League at the moment having put together a solid five-match unbeaten streak. They look a far cry from being the relegation candidates that they were looking for a large chunk of the season.

Wolves are just stuttering a little bit with only one point having been collected from their last three games. They need to secure some points to try and keep themselves in touch with the top five, but this is no easy trip to the south coast.

Southampton News and Form – Can the Saints keep the momentum going?

Only two points dropped from their last five games has been a tremendous reaction by Southampton to the struggles that they have had this season. In their last league outing, they pulled off a fantastic win at the King Power with a 2-1 victory over Leicester. The home form of the Saints isn’t terrific as they are only W3 D2 L6 at St Mary’s this season.

3/1

Betfred

They have avoided defeat in their last two played there, a draw against Crystal Palace and a victory over Spurs. The other way to gauge the home form of Southampton is that they have only lost one of their last five on home turf. All three of their home wins in this campaign have been recorded in their last five there. So their current form is on point.

Danny Ings has scored 13 goals in last 16 games now and is on a three-match scoring streak in the top flight currently. In each of Southampton’s last three home games, under 2.5 goals has happened, which is a good trend for this fixture. Summing up the revival that the Saints have undergone, three points in this game will move Southampton level on points with Wolves.

Wolves News and Form – Can Wolves recover their form?

Wolves have gone off the boil a bit, without question. It has been just one point that they have put on the board in their last three games. That was from a 1-1 draw at Newcastle in their last game. Wolves have only collected two wins in their last seven top-flight fixtures now (D2 L3). Their overall record this season is sat at W3 D5 L3 and they have lost their last two road games.

Those were defeats at Liverpool, which is excusable, then at Watford which for Wolves boss Nuno, will have been less so. There has been no clean sheet by Wolves in any of their last seven league away games and none in their last seven, home and away combined either. Just once have Wolves been leading at half time away from home (D4 L6).

70% of the away goals that Wolves have conceded away from Molineux this season have been in the first half of fixtures. Also potentially hampering Wolves was their extra work in midweek when they faced Manchester United in an FA Cup replay and lost 1-0 at Old Trafford. They sent out their strongest side for that. They need a bit of a lift at the moment at Wolves.

Southampton vs Wolves Predictions

This has the look of being a low scoring game. Southampton are just a totally different side at the moment, confident on the ball and with Ings in form up front, they are taking their chances as well.

With Wolves not running in top gear and having had an extra workload in midweek, the forecast should be good for the Saints to pick up another three points. The home win has appeal in the match outright.
